%, the medicare payroll tax. that's a job killer. so there's a relationship between job creation and taxes, economic activity and, therefore, revenues to the federal treasury and tax rates. tax rates and taxes are not the same thing. you can reduce tax rates and actually collect more taxes. again, it sounds paradoxical, but it's true. think of this when you go to the store before christmas and they slash their prices by 40%. they're not doing that to go out of business. they're still making money. they're making more money on the volume that increases because a lot more people coming into the store even though they reduced the cost of each of the items than they would if they increased the cost of each of the items. i guarantee if they raised their prices before christmas, their competitors would reduce their prices. not to make less money, they would get more people in, make more volume. and make more money. when you -- so i'm very reluctant to support a commission which i believe will undertake to reduce our deficit by raising tax rates. it's not good for job creation. it's not good for

not in favor of higher taxes, cutting medicare half a trillion, affecting medical coverage for veterans and basically having a one size fits all. so i know what i don't want. now i'm looking forward to reading the bills and coming up with a plan. if it's something the president feels is important, i'm certainly willing to look at it. >> reporter: he campaigned, of course, as the republican, the first republican in 32 years to be a senator from massachusetts. he campaigned as someone who would be able to slow down the efforts and, quite frankly, tony, stop the efforts of democrats as they try to do a comprehensive overhaul of health care reform. and they right now in light of his election are scrambling to figure out what the next steps are. both here on the senate side and also in the house of representatives, tony. >> and that scrum, brianna keilar for us. >>> independent voters, independent voters are credited with launching scott brown to his stunning victory in massachusetts. are you an independent voter? can you tell us why and what your core beliefs are? drop us a note at cnn.com/

medicare? i think we can do it better. to bring it back to the drawing board, there are some good things on a national plan being proposed. but if you look at this in a parochial matter, we have to look at massachusetts first. i felt as a legislator and a citizen that we have not done that very well. we always thought about washington first or the party first. the thing that i am hearing all throughout the state is what about us? thank you. nice to see. >> you ran as an independent. what is first on your agenda? to show that you are the independent that they wanted to send to washington. >> i have not had much sleep yet. but when i go down to washington tomorrow, i will meet with the delegation, all of which are democrats, and check in with the republican leadership, senator mccain who was helpful right from the beginning. people need to give me a chance to do a transition and see what is up -- what is on the agenda. i will look at each and every bill for its merits and how it affects our state and make the decision to say am i going to do this or do that. i don't think it is appropriate
